A Midsummer's Night's Dream is one of William Shakespeare's most popular and widely performed plays. The back cover synopsis of the Royal Shakespeare Company's edition reads as follows:
"Alternately lighthearted and savage, innocent and erotic, filled with love, mischief, and folly, A Midsummer Night's Dream is perhaps the perfect Elizabethan romantic comedy.
